Last year when I was traveling in Hong Kong, I stumbled upon a store called MINISO and I kind of fell in love. The store was bright and airy, the merchandise was modern and colourful. I bought half a suitcase worth of home goods and accessories there (this was around the time when I was moving into a new house so I needed everything)! Best part was the bill wasn’t that high at all! Affordability is one of their best selling points.
I was really stoked when they announced their expansion into Canada. Last week I was finally able to get my butt to the mall to check it out! I took a lot of photos so those of you who can’t visit one can still see the goodies! I was told their merchandise selection changes pretty frequently. Some items are priced very competitively and those tend to sell out quick.
They literally have everything from electronics to plush toys to makeup to kitchen utensils! Oh and if you’re a fan of We Bare Bears, Moomin or Pink Panther, you’ll want to look at these pictures! They have official licensed merchandise!

Some of the selection includes wallets, card holders, pouches, totes, handbags, backpacks, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, sunglasses, crossbody bags, socks, slippers.
They had USB cables, power banks, cellphone cases, ring stands, phone stands, VR headsets, selfie sticks, keyboards, mice, headphones.
Many cute and practical items like blankets, towels, washcloths, scales, bottles, cooking pans.
I didn’t buy too much this time since my place is now basically fully furnished. I realize as I’m typing this most of the items I bought is because of my new puppy. A storage box for his toys. New slippers because he chewed up my husband’s old pair. A mini garbage bin for my desk because he likes to jump onto my chair to snatch tissues. Cotton pads to clean his ears with. A new bathroom rug because he had an accident on the old one (*ahem* diarrhea..).
